Tenants Liability Insurance
In association with RGA Underwriting we have put together a comprehensive insurance policy that insures your Landlord’s fixtures and fittings that your Tenants are responsible for (under their Tenancy Agreement), and gives them the option to add their own contents cover.
Why Insure Through RGA?
At just £79*, our standard cover offers your Tenants comprehensive and flexible insurance for their possessions in the property.
This includes up to £2,500 protection for the Landlord’s fixtures, fittings and contents against accidental damage as standard, and optional contents cover for Landlord's and Tenant's possessions against incidents such as fire, flood and theft.
Simply pass on our details to your Tenants - our staff will call them and run through a quote to get them protected straight away. We have a 14-day cooling off period, should they change their mind. We'll also supply you with free marketing material to include in your tenancy packs.
In addition we can cover loss or damage to contents contained in the home and its domestic outbuildings and garages caused by:
- Fire, smoke, explosion, lightning, storm, flood, earthquake or subterranean fire
